Cheap Halloween Costume Ideas

Are you going to a Halloween costume party?
If you’re low on cash, but you still want to WOW your friends with an awesome costume, then take inspiration from these atrocious high-fashion ensembles. This post will show how you can have a unique costume and not spend a lot of dough:
If you’ve got a pair of black tights and a couple rolls of butcher paper, then you can go as a origami girl.
Do you have an old bed sheet? Then go as the mystery femme in red–or just use any old bed sheet. All you need is a sheet and a couple of cardboards cut into shoulder pads. Just hang the sheet over your head (make sure you poke holes for the eyes and lips. You need to be able to see where yore going and drink all that free booze). This costume is perfect if you’re on the shy side. No one will know it’s you unless you tell them.
Have you recently lost a lot of weight (like say a 100 pounds or so) and you just don’t know what to do with that coat that is just too big for you now? Then you can go as this fashionably eccentric bag lady. Put that coat on and you’ll look like the queen of skid row.
Here’s a costume that gets a 100% in the cutesy rating. Go as tinker belle. All you need is a pair of yellow tights (oh come on–you must have a pair stashed from your 80’s wardrobe) and a tattered 3/4 sleeve nightshirt. Use an old tie or scarf to cinch it around the waist and you can get the feather at your local craft store.
Wanna combine the old with the new? Then go as a space age goddess. For this look, all you need is a 33 gallon plastic trash bag. Cut three holes for your head and arms and you’ve got an instant costume.
If you are totally broke and you don’t have anything in your wardrobe then this next tip won’t cost you a thing. Be Eve before the fall and just go in your birthday suit. You won’t even need a fig leaf.
